"FORCEnet is the core of Sea Power 21 and Naval Transformation, and it is the Navy and Marine Corps vehicle to make the CNOs vision of network-centric operations/warfare an operational reality. FORCEnet is the command and control pillar that gives speed and agility to the commander. The commander can then optimally employ Sea Strike, Sea Shield and Sea Basing by integrating weapons, sensors, reachback centers and warfighters at all levels into a secure networked, distributed combat force - the Naval contribution to the Global Information Grid (GIG). Navy leadership must have accurate and timely data to make well-informed decisions about future FORCEnet capabilities. The Naval Network Warfare Command (NETWARCOM), the operational agent for FORCEnet, has created a series of annual events to supply these data points. These events are collectively called Trident Warrior (TW)."
